The ALL GONE BOOK: A DECADE OF STREETWEAR’S FINEST – PANEL DISCUSSION gave attendees a unique opportunity to learn more about the book and discuss street culture as a whole.
Last Friday, the teams from FOOTPATROL, ADIDAS, BREAKS and those of us here at THE DROP DATE got together in London to host an evening of reflection and debate that examined the past decade of street culture. The event was hosted by The Drop Date’s very own RY BARR, who put questions to a panel consisting of MICHAEL ‘LAMJC’ DUPOUY, author of the ALL GONE books, JOEL STODDART, Junior Creative at U-Dox and GARY WARNETT, of Gwarizm and Crooked Tongues notoriety. The discussion covered a range of topics, including the history of the ALL GONE books and the current state of the industry, the latter of which was broken down into subjects such as collaborations, hype, marketing, reselling and the impact of social media.
Despite their different backgrounds and experiences, the panel (as well as the majority of those who attended) all seemed to agree that there are both positives and negatives to where the culture is at the moment and that there are definitely some changes that they would like to see in the coming years. Ideas on how to grow and develop the community were put forward and discussed, leaving all attendees with plenty of food for thought.
It was invaluable to get these insights from three very knowledgeable guys – and we think we can speak for everyone when we say that we’d have loved the evening to have gone on for longer! The ALL GONE BOOK: A DECADE OF STREETWEAR’S FINEST – PANEL DISCUSSION was the kind of event we would like to see more often: keep checking back with us for updates on all future events.
